Virii Hoaxes

A person I know, who shall remain nameless, recently sent me an email regarding the jdbmgr.exe “virus”. This nast virus was reportedly not being picked up by any of the virus scanners on the market. The email told you how to find the file and then how to delete it (make sure not to open it!).

After reading the email I wasn’t really surprised to find that the email is a hoax. It was posted on Symantec’s website about a month ago. The funny part is the email I got from him is on the Symantec page *exactly* as he sent it. What’s even more impressive is the hoax appears in 10 different languages (3 different English versions).
